Upcoming Service

An Invitation to Re-Imagine

From the moment we are born, we begin to learn many things about the world we live in. Sometimes we absorb information of our surroundings naturally, on our own; other times we are taught things to believe as fact, as the gospel. We grow into adults, settle into our truths, and many of us never question the foundational teachings that shaped viewpoint or perspective. Please join E.N. Hill and Courtney Liebi, Worship Associate Dick Bailey, and Church Musicians Geoff Ullerich and Stefan Schneider in this invitation to re-imagine certain stories that have become our truths, a gentle encouragement for us to take active roles in opening new possibilities for the narration of our lives. This is a “Time for All Ages” Service.
